Lily Elsie

**You will notice that I have edited two of the images. Elsie is holding a type of doll that was widely considered acceptable at that time but is now ackowledged to have been offensive.

If you have found it useful, or entertaining, how about a small donation to Blind Veterans UK?
It was clearly a cause that Elsie cared about early in the last century and the need is still very much there in this new century. Thank you. RJS (Editor)
